We had quite a special day in Helsinki International Championship Show, Winner 2004. This day to remember started with success when Karvin Tia Maria’s puppies Karvin Inside Edition and Karvin Irish Eyes won BOB and BOS puppy!
Then my two juniors, Gill’s Comeback (Inassicas Smart and Secret x Karvin Champagne) ”Luukas” and his ”little” sister Gill’s Carolina Klüft ”Ada”, both got Excellent in huge junior classes. Comeback was 2nd in his class (18 entries) and Carolina Klüft won her class (24 entries) and got the tittle Junior Winner 2004. Karvin Tia Maria was 2nd in the Open Class with Excellent (20 entries).
